Happy Birthday (inspired by Lisa)


This card was inspired by Lisa A's card:


I love how she nestled the 'happy' along the b of the birthday. So I found a little happy and then decided that once wasn't enough - you can never have too much happy, right?

I used this PTI birthday die and various colours of ink to create my happy rainbow. I thought about placing the birthday up on the line of happiness, but in the end, I preferred the cleaner look by putting it slightly below.

We've started spring break. Struan is leaving for NYC with the Air Cadets at 6:00 am this morning, leaving me and Kate to enjoy a week of girl time - perfect timing since she received lots of gift cards and money for her birthday and we'll have lots of time for shopping, movies and lunches out!

Love the rainbow of color as always. I hope Struan has a great trip and that you/Kate have a fabulous week together.

The small happys make a cute background for the bold birthday. Your graphic style wows me again :)

Amazing card! Love how bold and crisp it looks. How do you stamp those repeatedly and not one is crooked or off line....that in itself would be my biggest challenge if I tried to CASE your card.

Colour selection and stamping perfect once again! Fabulous card (how do you keep your images so aligned!!). Enjoy Spring Break with your daughter; sounds like much fun will be had with just you two girls. Ours begins on Mar. 21...two weeks off...yayyyy!

You're in the middle of Spring Break, yay! Hope you and Kate are really having fun together (of course, right?) Love your rainbow of happiness, literally.
